Very deep and highly recommended for the serious functional programmer.
But if you like learning new and explore more - then this book will surely open your eyes on functional programming.
It assumes that you already have some working knowledge of FP - so it won't serve you as a tutorial. But once you started doing some functional programming and want to creat larger apps, you would need to incorporate some data structures and this is the moment where you will find out that there is only one book on functional data structures... It is this one.
A quantitative background is almost a pre-requisite here, and fluency in elementary data structures mandatory. But there again this is this books audience.
It has no competition but a second edition would be great (and ditch the SML).
It is exceptionally well written and authoritative, but because my understanding of Haskell is scant I wouldn't be best placed to judge if it should go up a star to two.
